Los Gatos: Town puts all-electric vehicles on the road – San Jose Mercury News

Los Gatos has five brand new, all-electric vehicles that residents will soon see being driven around town. The Los Gatos vehicles are Mitsubishi i-MiEV models that get approximately 112 MPGe. The “e” stands for equivalent and is a measure that allows people to compare the fuel efficiency of electric vehicles and gas-powed vehicles.
Mayor Barbara Spector was among the first to check out one of the new vehicles. She took a couple of test drives around the civic center parking lot before she and town manager Greg Larson headed off to a June 25 meeting.
Spector said the new vehicles will help promote the town’s sustainability goals. “In addition to being nearly 40 percent less expensive to fuel, these vehicles will significantly reduce the town’s greenhouse gas emissions–over three years our five vehicles will avoid nearly 20,000 pounds of CO2,” she said.
